Another genre-defying effort from sea.envy starts off this battle of the beats, coming at you dark and hard. This one is just begging for a response. Psy-tech ninja Deformaty answers that call, bringing an equally dark tune to the table. With a large portion of acid squelch and a kick thumping away like a heartbeat on overdrive, all layered upon a bed of tribal percussion, the infection is contained, but not without further damage. In a metphorical creation of something from nothing, UK trance...

Yup, the first release, and it's good! The whole affair begins with a psychedelic techno number that builds and builds and builds from our good friend Revy, himself no stranger to the Northwest. As further proof that he can bust out some bleeping good music, be sure to keep an ear out for his own upcoming label early next year. Up next is a hard to define track from label founder sea.envy with a growling arpeggiated baseline that will leave you wanting more for sure. Bringing it home and in...

Hot damn have we got a good for you this time!! The main event himself opens up this killer release with a funky-ass number that will have you shuffling your feet while the bass melts your freaking mind. Up next, give a hearty welcome to Simex as he makes his Manifest Northwest debut with a slammin' banger. This is one hard piece of music, but the dubby elements keep it grounded and it will no doubt rock the kids heads for that ultimate peak time experience. Joe Nemo brings us back for another...

Coming at you like a bolt from the blue is a progressive techno monster from Der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. The pitch-shifting madness and deep rumbling bass in Seeking Nothing will leave your ears happy and neighbors pissed! And of course this wouldn't be a Manifest Northwest release without some solid mind-melting action, and Cycles delivers. Winiberg at his finest, proving without a doubt his skills as a musician's musician.

Less is more: a concept dating back to the 1850's and yet still prevelant today. In our latest we feature three prime dancefloor movers that truly fit the less is more aesthetic like a glove. Filters and clicks keep your feet bouncing as the percussive monster that is "Less Is More" builds it's strength. Following the same proven formula, Renaissance continues to push the boundaries of just how good it can get. Ending with a bang, The Bomb drops the beat down, infusing a wee bit of...

A couple of delicious minimal delights await you upon your download of our latest and greatest. Hitting your eardrums direct from Argentina, Matias Rapacioli shows how they do down there, and boy have they got it right. Starting off with the title track, a moody intro begins the journey before coming in with the tightly sequenced beats. Trippy stabs and tribal funkiness abound. Tripping Nebula continues the formula for success with pounding kicks and a throbbing bassline. Minimal of the highest...

The folks in Spain have proven themselves time and time again, and here is a perfect example of some more tasty music coming from the region. Custe opens up this release with interesting track- part breakbeat, part electro, and all techno! The perfect soundtrack for lazy days and mind-melting nights. Haunting and daunting at the same time, Replace continues the pace. Highly percussive with little room for melody, this track nonetheless can be quite trance inducing. Finishing things up with the...

Starting the new year off proper, Portland's minimal-tech hero Chris Firenze brings three very bangin' tracks to the table. After successful releases on SubSensory Recordings last year as well as a frantic DJ/Live PA schedule, we couldn't be happier to have him aboard for this stunning release. Kicking it off, 'Some May Say' is a bass heavy tech house deal with a glitchy synth line that finishes as strong as it starts. On to the real crowd pleaser - the title track 'Duplicity' is catchy tune...

Continuing to pioneer the psy tech sound, our main man Deformaty delivers in spades. As a special gift, we are pleased to present to you our sophmore release, the "Make Believe Color" EP, just in time for the holidaze. Chock full of delicious bass stabs and mechanized beats complimented by spacey breakdowns and builds, "This Song Does Not Exist" goes deeper than you know! On to the main event, the title track has a little something for everyone. In "Make Believe...

Mr. Nemo has been a long time personal favorite, and we couldn't be more excited to bring him into the fold. This funky minimal stomper of an EP is filled to the brim with block rockin' beats that are guaranteed to shuffle up those feet. Relentless and in the best way possible, Ready Or Not delivers it pounding like it should be, and as always with that Nemo signiature blend of funk and function! Here I Come builds like a storm, at once dark and brooding yet with an airy, uplifting feeling...
